Art.nr.: JUN-D-AP8 CODEC
This coding/decoding audio processor was developed in close cooperation with Dolby® Labs to replace legacy Dolby® coding and decoding hardware. It provides all tools required to handle compressed audio and metadata in a modular and customizable device.
Targeting all areas in broadcast environments where Dolby® coding, decoding, transcoding or real-time metadata emulation is required, this modular coding/decoding processor will leave nothing to be desired.
D*AP8 CODEC EDITION offers all the hard- and software needed to process a wide range of Dolby® formats. The basic unit includes 8 AES/EBU I/O’s and Dolby® decoding capabilities plus real-time metadata emulation. If required, just add an encoding option for the Dolby® format required. Supported Dolby® formats are:
• Dolby® E
• Dolby® D
• Dolby® D+
• Dolby® Pro Logic II
By incorporating up to two auto sensing 3G, HD or SD-SDI interfaces DAP8 CODEC EDITION gives users access to 16 channels of SDI embedded audio. It is also possible to send deembedded programs to AES outputs to feed third party equipment. The DAP8 CODEC EDITION’s SDI board may also be used as an embedder, and comes with video and audio delay to compensate any latency between audio and video.
To check compliance of programs with your local loudness regulations the unit analyzes loudness and true peak levels from input signals and transfers the measurement data via Ethernet to an optional measurement and logging software anywhere in your network. These measurements can be triggered by automation systems via GPIs, via network or even manually on the XAP RM1 remote panel. The DAP8 CODEC EDITION can also generate SNMP or GPI/O alarms in case pre-determined limits are exceeded.
The optional Loudness Logger software, allows for long term program logging and analysis.
All system parameters are remotely accessible allowing the unit to be integrated and remotely operated by broadcast control systems.
A web interface allows easy and intuitive setup and configuration anywhere in your network.
Audio I/Os range from on board AES I/O to optional 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O including video delay and analog I/O. With redundant PSU and SNMP integration the unit ensures maximum operational safety.
